Greetings from Greece!
QT has just returned from the “cradle of civilization”. This part of the world is generally credited with being the first place where civilized societies truly began to take shape. Today, the country of Greece relies heavily on tourism to support its economy and QT did her part by seeing many of the sights. Her trip to Greece was exciting and memorable in so many ways. She climbed Mount Olympus, toured cliffside nunneries, and visited ancient temples dating back to the Stone Age (the oldest in Europe).
Greece is a democratic country in southeastern Europe with a population of just under 11 million people. It’s terrain is mostly mountains but also boasts beautiful beaches along the longest coastline on The Mediterranean Sea and more than 1000 islands. It is the birthplace of democracy, the Olympic Games and many major scientific and mathematical principles.
One of the unusual and unexpected things that QT found in Greece was their love of cats. Needless to say, she felt right at home. In ancient times the Greeks revered cats and held them in high esteem, much like the Egyptians. There were cats everywhere, many were “free range” – QT’s idea of humor I guess.
Stay tuned, QT has more adventures planned!
Love these blogs! Katy, you really know how to be creative. Keep ’em coming!
